It looks like Clay Aiken is going from runner-up on American Idol to runner-up on Celebrity Apprentice to hopefully not runner-up for the Congress seat he officially announced he is running for! The Season 2 runner-up shared the video below in our American Idol 2014 spoilers of his intentions of running for Congress in North Carolina, his home state, which is currently heald by Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers since 2011. Check out the video message below!

In the message, Clay Aiken says: “I saw this as the best place I could serve, because I think Washington, in general, is dysfunctional. I think it’s high time we put people in Congress who were not beholden to their party, and not beholden to anything but the people who they live around and grew up around, in my case.”

He talks a lot about growing up in North Carolina and going to Hollywood and not letting it change him and how people go to Washington, D.C. and let it change them. He will go to Washington, D.C. and not let it change him either. Not going to lie, but he sounds very smart and intellectual in the video message and think he could have a chance at winning the seat! If people could text in their votes, I think he would have an even bigger chance of winning!
